Where can you rent a slim fitting tuxedo?

There are a number of places that offer tuxedo rental. Some examples include:

  • Lapel.com
  • Men's Warehouse
  • Jos A. Banks
  • Savvi Formalware

Most places will offer a group discount, (i.e. if you were renting for a wedding party).

Additionally, you can save some money by taking advantage of seasonal sales, such as prom, and around the holiday season.

At first, it may seem cheaper to buy instead of rent, but if you rent, they will arrange for all of the alterations at no additional cost.

Another Answer:

just buy one...

slim fit tuxes, or modern tuxes are generally more expensive. Calvin Klein and Hugo boss make really nice ones...

here's what i did...

I've rented 3 tuxes in the past 2 years for a total of $350...i was tired of paying that for a polyester tux that didn't fit that well.

i went to Men's Warehouse and bought their least expensive wool tuxedo jacket...then i bought a pair of flat front wool tuxedo pants. I took the two to the tailor and had it fit and altered exactly the way i wanted it...with a more slim and modern look.

total after alterations $250. i decided to buy nice shoes that were 50% off for $80, but you can get less expensive tux shoes for $30.

grand total $330...

Ill have this tux for at least the next ten years...which if i continue with needing at least 2 tuxes every year that would be over $2000 for the 10 years.

if i had bought a Calvin or Hugo it would have been well over $500 for everything. Now i have a sweet tux that looks just like the modern slim fit designer brands...for a fraction of the price.

The Difference Between
Tuxedos

What is the difference between a suit and a tuxedo?

Tuxedo jackets have a satin lapel; tuxedo pants have a satin stripe down the outside legs. Tuxedo shirts often have a pleated front, as well as being compatible with studs and cuff links. Patent leather shoes are worn with tuxedos. Suits have a self lapel (same fabric as the body of the coat), no satin stripe down the pants, with a plain-front dress shirt and ordinary leather shoes are worn.

Traditionally, a tuxedo has a curved "shawl" lapel or a pointed "peak" lapel. Today, the majority of tuxedos have "notch" lapels like those of a common suit. Tuxedos also traditionally have only one button, compared to two or three on suits; this distinction is also less common today.

What navy uniform in place of tuxedo?

There is a special Dinner Dress uniform that resembles a tuxedo, however it is quite expensive. Whenever I need to wear a tuxedo for a wedding or funeral, etc, I prefer to wear the Dress Blues with ribbons as it is black and can be worn anytime of year. Also, if you are attending a wedding, Ribbons fit best so you don't upstage the groom, of course that is just my opinion.

Ruffles are now back in style for 2011

Can you rent just the vest of a tuxedo from a place such as mens wearhouse?

Absolutely!!!

Most tuxedo rental stores will not allow the rental of individual components that make up a tuxedo, i.e., shirt, tie, vest, etc. They see it as not worth their time or effort and choose not to "fool" with such things.

Mens Wearhouse does not see it this way. Apparently, it's all in how you look at it - is the glass half empty or is it half full? My son needed just a vest and tie as he was able to wear my tux and they treated him as though he were renting full tuxedo outfits for a wedding.

The service was great, the items were top notch and was very inexpensive.

How does a tuxedo shirt differ from a regular dress shirt?

Tuxedo shirt, also called "evening shirt", is much more formal than a regular dress shirt, and it is always white. It should have a detachable wing collar and be fastened with shirt studs instead of buttons on the front. One has to wear it with black tie or white tie. Cuffs normally require cuff links.

What tuxedo do I wear?

It depends on the occasion. Of course I only think there are two. One is a man's dress jacket, usually black with satin or grosgrain lapels, worn for formal or semiformal occasions. The other is a complete outfit including this jacket, trousers usually with a silken stripe down the side, a bow tie, and often a cummerbund.
